This is so weird, I know, but I have a thing for denim skirts. ESPECIALLY denim maxi skirts. I saw this Mother denim skirt online at Last Call and kind of passed over it, because of the length looked strange – and it is strange – but when I was in the store, it just happened to be at the end of a rack IN MY SIZE calling to me. I knew before I tried it on I was going to buy it, much to the chagrin of my friend I was with 😉
Anyway, I’ve kind of stopped buying things that REALLY speak to me and that I REALLY REALLY love either because I can’t afford them, or because I am afraid I can’t work them into my wardrobe and will never wear them. That “being afraid” nonsense had to stop. So I got this skirt. It is definitely not the most flattering thing ever, but I don’t care. It is ridiculously comfortable, stretchy, and something no one else will DARE wear, so I love it! And think it goes great with my Converse X Play CdG Low tops which I don’t wear nearly enough, but when I do, they ALWAYS make me smile.
Speaking of Converse X Play CdG, you did notice my shoes are now 25% off at Azalea right? The ENTIRE SITE is now 25% off – Comme des Garcons is NOT restricted from the code, and they just added some pieces from the new Marvelous collection (I’m Obsessed with the wallet with the hot pink zipper), so if you’re a CdG fan, head over there and snag your pieces ASAP.
Hope this makes a great start to your weekend!!
omg you know I am not much of a commenter but thinking I am said friend I have to say that skirts looks awesome and tres adorable with the shoes that I am going to put in my cart asap! the big question now is would I EVER where that fabulous skirt?

you would look crazy good in that skirt, although it will be shorter on you. i wear it EVERYWHERE. all of the time.

Are you surprised that I like this skirt? Because you shouldn’t be 🙂 I remember coveting a friend’s denim maxi skirt in high school so the concept is not all that foreign to me.
It does look MUCH better on you than in the pic, though.
I have exercised amazing restraint today, I think the length on you makes all the difference, shorter might not be so much. Now about those kicks…how does a girl with 5 pairs of converse at any one time choose only one color?
I like this on you, but I have to pass for myself. I associate fundamental religious groups with long denim skirts. I wouldn’t be able to do it and wouldn’t want to be mistaken for one!!! 🙂 But you don’t look like a fundamental religious mother-of-6, either, so it must be all in the styling.
You look SO slim in this outfit!! I say 3 thumbs up! (Oh, wait…I only have 2.)
haha. thanks val!
you know, now that you mention it, i have associated long denim skirts w/religious fundamentalism too (i used to be modern orthodox Jewish….), but hadn’t even thought about it with this. but i see your point 😉
why do you have to choose just ONE??? 😉
no, i’m not surprised you like it! i’m so in love, it’s all i can do not to wear it constantly. wait…that’s what i said about my EF harem pants too. i have so many things i’m in love with but not enough time to wear them all! could be worse i guess 😉
